Release/Review Blitz: Savage Gods by Natalie Bennett

Title: Savage Gods
Series: Reign & Ruin Book Two
Author: Natalie Bennett
Genre: Dark NA Mafia/Bully Romance
Release Date: October 14, 2021

A queen is said to be the most powerful piece on the board, but no one ever mentions that she’s maneuvered by the king.

I gave myself to a monster to save the ones who betrayed me.
I let myself be crowned queen of a world I didn’t understand, making me not only a prisoner, but the perfect pawn.

Judas Barron is even more lethal than I could have ever imagined.
A savage god in a league of his own.

I thought he could grow to love me.
I thought wrong.

There’s a mutual hatred between us and it grows stronger by the day. As does the sickeningly toxic need we have for one another.
He’s taken me away from everything I’ve ever known.
He wants me to shatter so he can collect all the pieces.
He thinks he can tear my world apart without consequence.
But what if the queen were to kill the king, and take his empire for herself?


With a penchant for (writing) villainous immoral men, and a tendency to deviate away from traditional happily ever afters, Natalie Bennett is an international bestselling author of twisted and unconventional love stories.
When she’s not slaying words she’s somewhere in the sunshine state, happily taking life one curve-ball at a time.

The heroine: Rhiannon Clermont – she just found out her parents have been lying to her. She grew up in a middle class home with two loving parents and she had pretty much guessed that she was adopted due to her coloring but she now knows it goes much deeper than that.

The Hero(es): Judas Barron – from the richest family around, he and the people he hangs out with are mafia and they kill whomever they have to in order to protect the famiglia. Judas saw Rhiannon years ago and has kept tabs on her ever since. He wants her to be his queen even though she comes from a family that is enemies with his.

The Story: Judas put things in place so that Rhiannon would go to his school and ever since he has put on the full court press (uber dominant version) in order to maneuver her exactly where he wants her.

Judas was hard to pin down in this one. He was so dominant, possessive and overbearing at times, even controlling. Yet other times he was endearing. He didn’t have any issue in declaring what he felt for Rhiannon. He admitted how obsessed with her he was and he was definitely much more of a giver than a taker in the bedroom. How can you not like that kind of enthusiasm? Judas isn’t one to play those jealousy games that so many anti-Heroes play. He told her earlier on that she was it for him.

Though there were a ton of secrets and things going on that we weren’t getting the full picture about. Judas definitely does some shady things when it comes to Rhiannon. I like how the reader is only let in on a little bit more than the heroine so the mystery and suspense is increased and we find out some of the answers right along with Rhiannon.

I definitely couldn’t put the book down. The story was good, the romance was excellent, the Hero was a sociopath but he kept me interested. I alternately loved him and hated him throughout the entire book. I also really liked the ending and I hope the next book, Vicious Dynasty is as good as it sounds at the end of this book.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
